YARD BULL

Post by OhioTom » Mon Feb 11, 2008 10:21 am

I just finished reading "Yard Bull" by Dean O'Shea. It's an interesting book about a young man home from 'Nam and his adventures working as a yard bull for BNSF. Not great literature, but it does give some insight into the life of a railroad cop. It does drift off into his marrige, followed by his wife's untimely death, which are OK, but there is a lot about his adventures as a yard bull in the Seattle area. I must say...I've never read a book on this topic before, and I would be happy to reccomend it. You can purchase it thru Amazon, or directly from the author.

Happy Reading!!!
